The restoration, management, and ongoing maintenance of the inland waterways is a mammoth task.
Working alongside the Canal & River Trust (formerly British Waterways) are a huge number of organisations, charities and an army of volunteers, and most canals have an active Trust or Society holding regular meetings, talks and fundraising events.

Or go on a WRG camp?
You don't need anything special... just a sleeping bag, a pair of wellies, and a willingness to muck in. There's a job for everyone, no matter what skills you arrive with. Waterways Recovery Group (WRG) organisers say to first-timers "you are unlikely to feel a newcomer for long". WRG camps are as legendary for sociability as they are for restoring canals - expect mud, sweat and tears of laughter.
